Physicochemical Properties of PC

Under normal conditions, pure PC is a white solid, which is easy to absorb water, so it is mostly transparent or translucent and has a light fragrance. PC is soluble in organic solvents, such as n-hexane, diethyl ether, ethanol, methanol, etc. It is also soluble in water, forming a colloidal solution, insoluble in acetone, and has no definite melting point. In the presence of phospholipase A1, PC can produce lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC) with enhanced emulsifying ability.
